The Level 7 District Nurse apprenticeship standard has been approved for delivery since 30th September 2019.
District nurses work with individuals and populations. This can mean working with people in their own home, a healthcare setting or even the streets in the case of the homeless population. District Nurses assess and care for patients with a wide range of health conditions and are accountable for a large varied complex caseload. They prioritise care, assess risk, prescribe medication, dressings and appliances in accordance with legislation, manage changing local demands which require very careful oversight and case management.
There are currently 11 registered training providers for this standard.
To find out further details about Training Providers and the register you can access gov.uk guidance about RoATP (Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers).
